    Pay before or after filling up with petrol?

    E10 is 10% ethanol - some car engines can use it. My holden can - it would say on the inside of the filler cap usually. If it doesnt say, probably wise not to use it
  2. there is an old blog post here: https://platinumfreight.com.au/blog/importing-caravans-australia-uk/ but the guys still operate - so you could give them a call. I think the conversion costs can stack up too - but you still might come out ahead

    Overseas Post

    thats your first mistake! For me it seems to go in cycles, and trying to work out why drives me to distraction. Stuff i get from china can take 2 weeks. Recently one item came a month after i had lodged a no delivery dispute and got a refund, so about 3 months from transaction. UK has been around 2 weeks but again is hit and miss. Even interstate can be ridiculous. Last month i ordered a part for my bike from sydney. My parents posted a couple of letters on the same day. I had the letters before the parcel from sydney

    Life in quarantine (Melbourne)

    Just seen on my timeline that 5 years ago today, i packed our movecube and waved it off. Lots of drama and angst and stress since then, but not a single regret in coming here. Good luck @Lavers Lifes an adventure. embrace it.

    Life in quarantine (Melbourne)

    It's nice. We are there right now on holiday. Going back to lockdown on Saturday. Portland is OK, a couple of supermarket's and shops plus a few places to go and see. Fishing charters are still going, so live is carrying on. Port Fairy is really nice, but there is nothing there to keep you going for a few days. Of the two, we would go with Portland. Plenty of touristy stuff around and at cape bridgewater etc.

    Aircraft fleets

    I liked the sense of space - particularly if you could get the economy seats upstairs on the Singapore airlines ones. We always found there was always 5 or 6 planes all landing within minutes of each other so queues were just part of it all

    Aircraft fleets

    just did a check on flight radar (you can filter on aircraft type. it looks like there are only 2 a380s in the sky as at 09:41 AEST. which is really sad. As Eera states both china southern, 1 heading to amsterdam, 1 leaving vancover

    Are you downloading COVIDSafe app ?

    It needs bluetooth to ping other devices, so only needs to be on when out and about.
